The Fake Slant of a Story
They hyped it as ultra expensive.
The thing is.....if you've ever been to NY City....mixed drinks in general do cost $13 each. Wine (good wine) runs $13 each. US beer does run (in a big glass) $10 each. And rarely will you find any sodas in NYC for less than $5 or $6....especially if ice is dumped on top.
So either the reporter is some guy who came out of Waco, Texas or Guntersville, Alabama, and was expecting $6 beers, and $8 cocktails....or they wanted to hype up some bogus slant on an unworthy news item.
If you don't want a beer in the Hilton of New York City ($11 for imported Canadian stuff), then maybe you should have gone down a block or two and just stepped in some Korean "mom and pop" shop to buy a six-pack and drink out front.
Frankly, I've had it with journalists being so slanted that they can't really tell an honest story anymore.
